For you, the issue of being able to effectively communicate your organizations needs within your community
is more than just a website...
more than just a training manual...
it is more than having a single volunteer that knows what to do...

You need someone who can do more for your organization than slap together a website and leave you to figure out how it works. We work with you so that based on our past experience and your needs we can together build or upgrade your organization's web presence. We will help you decide what will work best for your organization.

The groups that we provide this service for:
- have a local focus,
- are working to develop the communities that they are in,
- green
- pushing the limits towards sustainability.

More importantly they pay what they can, and for some that means $0. Also we know that learning new technology is not easy for some and is not the only thing that needs to be done, which is why we also offer trainings on these tools as well as organization development consulting.
